I have certain opinions — and I know you’re all shocked by that, but really, I do — about thing. Ok, about just about everything. That includes sports. I’m hoping that I’m teaching the wee ones that basketball and soccer (except little kids playing it) are bad and other sports are good.
You know my lessons (and not my husband’s) are sinking in when you have the following conversations.
Scene: At the chiro, as we’re getting ready to leave. Mister Man is putting on his Sox hat.
Receptionist: Oh, are you a Sox fan?
Mister Man: Yes, I’m a Sox fan.
Receptionist: That’s too bad! I’m a Cubs fan. (Poor lady, they’re almost in last place again)
Mister Man: Oh, I’m actually a fan of all the teams. Except the Yankees.
Me: Ummm, Mister Man, I thought you didn’t like the Cubs either?
Mister Man: (leaning in close to whisper in my ear) I don’t really, but I don’t want to hurt her feelings by telling her that I don’t like her team.
All together now: Awww.
Oh, and if you ask either of the wee ones what their favorite teams are, they’ll tell you they love the Twins the best. And the Vikings. And the Wildcats. Yep, it’s definitely sinking in. Imagine what it would be like if I didn’t work and spent all day with them!
